Sonatas for Cello & Piano by Francesco Cilèa, Léon Boëllmann & Alberic Magnard / Simca Heled, cello; Jonathan Zak, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Recorded live in Europe, these three great sonatas for cello and piano by three composers - Francesco Cilèa, Léon Boëllmann and Alberic Magnard - who straddled, or nearly so, the 19th and 20th c., are played by the veteran talents of cellist Simca Heled and pianist Jonathan Zak. Mr. Heled and Mr. Zak, together with pianist Uri Pianka, founded the superb Yuval Trio, a famed grouping that persisted for over 25 years. All three works are rarely heard and not often recorded, making this recording a valuable document of too little-known stellar craftsmanship played with welcome, high musicianship.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
If you don't have the Vox recordings, this production is fine. All of the works have been recorded by other performers. The music is excellent and the players clearly love it, as do I. So if you don't already have them, go for it!
